How to connect physical pushbuttons to a computer for use in a soundboard program? Answered
I plan to do a project that will use 28 arcade style pushbuttons to activate 28 different sounds on a computer.
Any ideas on products out there I can use to connect all 28 buttons to a computer, preferably with a USB cable, so it can be used in a programming language such as C++?
One idea I had was to take apart a QWERTY keyboard, but I still want to be able to use my regular keyboard to use my computer.
Alternatively, is there a way for two keyboards to be connected to same computer, but one of them only activates a specific program? i.e. trying to type in notepad with it wouldn't work?
